Maxalt (rizatriptan), the fourth "triptan" for migraines

Merck Frosst is now marketing Maxalt (rizatriptan), the fourth "triptan" for migraines.

Think of Maxalt as similar to Imitrex (sumatriptan) and Zomig (zolmitriptan)...with a fast onset and short duration of action.

Amerge (naratriptan) is different. It has a slower onset...and lasts longer...to prevent RECURRENT headache.
